Bat-Signal City Hall: LA Lights Up Night to Honor Adam West

Acilia Dean | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:10

In Batman comic lore, the Bat-Signal is a spotlight featuring Batman's winged emblem that is displayed in the night sky to call for Batman's assistance. West was most known for his role in the 1960s Batman television series, where his movements were marked with the iconic 'Wham!' and 'Pow!' graphics, as well as his tongue-in-cheek humor.

A fitting gesture to the late Adam West.

Ward, 71, who played Batman's sidekick Robin, said the other half of his 1960s dynamic duo spent his life "trying to make this world a better place". Adam West, disposing of bombs, dancing and making huge starbursts that said things like "ZONK!" when he punched people. "And I would tell you what he would be saying to every one of you if he were here: He would tell you that we're all on this planet for such a very short period of time".

DC's official statement about honouring Adam West:"Holy Bat-signal, Batman!".

It seems the whole Batman cast turned up with actress Lee Meriwether, 82, who played Catwoman also coming along.


He died on Friday at age 88 following a battle with leukemia. Any donations made helps benefit both St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, as well as an Idaho-based charity, Camp Rainbow Gold, which was designed for children who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families.

As Mayor Eric Garcetti paid tribute, the iconic signal was shone onto the exterior of the building.

Celebrities and fans showed an outpouring of support following West's passing, with everyone from current Batman actor Ben Affleck to "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane paying tribute.

In April 2012, West received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I understood the material and brought something to it.

West played the superhero straight for kids and amusing for adults.
